  1. If you haven’t already, download and install the Turtle Beach Audio Hub on your computer from Click to download the installer associated with your computer type — either Windows or Mac. You’ll see options to download the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app for iOS and Android devices. I’m not going to walk through how to factory reset your wireless headset using those apps because they only work for a few Turtle Beach wireless headset models.

  1. Connect your Turtle Beach wireless headset to your computer using a micro-USB cable, and then launch the Turtle Beach Audio Hub application. The Turtle Beach Audio Hub will automatically detect your wireless headset model and display information associated with your model. If your headset model isn’t detected and you see this screen instead, then try using a different micro-USB cable to see if that causes your headset to be recognized.
  2. Click “Restore” beneath the image of your headset on the left side of the screen. A window appears asking if you want to restore your Turtle Beach wireless gaming headset to its factory default settings.

  1. Click “Yes.” A progress bar appears in the center of the screen that will show the progress of the factory reset. When the factory reset is complete, an Update Successful message appears.

  1. Click “OK” to close this dialog box. The factory reset process is complete, and you’ll now need to pair your Turtle Beach wireless headset with a gaming console to use it.
